Kennedy assassination quiets

ALBANY, N.Y. (P)-New York's
primary election campaigning,
W subdued by the slaying of Robert
F. Kennedy, drew to a close yes-
terday as supporters of Vice Pres-
ident Hubert Humphrey and Sen.
Eugene McCarthy vied quietly for
the bulk of the 123 Democratic
convention delegates at stake.
Slates of delegates pledged to
the late senator still will appear
on the ballot today, and most
say they hope to be elected as
"supporters of the principles" for
which Kennedy stood.
On the Republican ticket, Gov.
Nelson A. Rockefeller has ignored
a relatively minor challenge by
adherents of Richard M. Nixon.
They are contesting for only 11
of the 82 GOP delegates to be
elected, and Rockefeller is guar-
anteed the rest.
Since Kennedy's assassination,
what had been shaping up as a
spirited three-way struggle for
control of New York's Democratic
delegation has been allowed to
drift to a conclusion that no one
seems willing to predict.
Instead, action has centered on
competition among three Demo-
Press crats for the Senate nomination
to oppose Republican incumbent
Jacob K. Javits.
In the first test of New York's
new direct-primary law, replac-
ing the old convention method of
picking candidates for statewide
office, Democrats will ballot di-
rectly for their party's Senate
The contenders, Eugene H.
Nickerson, a Kennedy man, U. S.
Rep. Joseph Y. Resnick, a staunch
defender of the Johnson-Humph-
rey administration, and former
New York Councilman Paul
O'Dwyer, a McCarthy admirer,
carried their campaigning through
the final weekend.
IhMostobservers rated Nickerson
the favorite, largely because he
was the official choice of the
Kennedy-controlled State Com-
mittee and has strong organiza-
tion support.
Among incumbent congressmen
facing contests were veteran Dem-
ocrats Adam Clayton Powell and
Emanuel Celler, the dean of New
York's congressional delegation.
Powell, the Harlem minister who
has been denied seating by the
U.S. House of Representatives,
was a heavy favorite to beat John
H. Young, a former staff aide.
Celler's main opponent in a
three-way fight was Rep. Edna F.
Kelly, who was thrown into his

Court rules on
Police may not use evidence
overheard in telephone cals
WASHINGTON (N) - Criminal evidence obtained by po-
lice eavesdropping on a party line conversation may not be
used in state courts to convict a man, the Supreme Court
ruled yesterday.
With the 6-3 decision, the court reversed the conviction
of three Winter Park, Fla., men under Florida's lottery law.
The three, Clyde Franklin Lee, Glen Dulen Brecheen and
Cecil St. Clair Merritt, were convicted after an Orange Coun-
ty jury heard tape recordings of telephone calls to Lee's
house. Police had rented a'

house nearby and were able to
listen in when their telephone
was put on Lee's party line.
The convicted men contended
that since the principals in the
telephone conversations did not
consent to the police eavesdrop-
ping the tape recordings could
not be used as evidence.
Justice Potter Stewart delivered
the majority opinion of the court.
Justice Hugo L. Black wrote a
separate dissenting opinion.
Black, in announcing his dissent
from the bench, said the court in
its majority opinion had reversed
its ruling of some 13 years ago.
He added that "this is just one
more case in which it will be more
difficult to convict a criminal."
The federal communications act
makes it a crime for any person
to intercept and divulge the con-
tents of a telephone conversation
without consent of one party to
the conversation.
In other action yesterday, the
court denied permission for rail-
roads to cut freight rates to meet
truck and barge competition.
Agreeing with the Interstate
Commerce Commission, the court
ruled 8-1 that rate-cut proposals
may not be weighed by the stand-
ard of "out-of-pocket" costs.
Federal law and national trans-
portation policy make it illegl to
cut rates below cost to beat ou , a
competing means of transporta-
tion. The questiona was how to
measure costs.
The ICC ruled against the rail-
roads and appealed along with
the truck and barge interests to
the court when the ruling was set
aside by a federal court in Louis-
ville May 15, 1967.
CATV operators were spared by
the court from having to pay for
televised movies and other copy-
righted material they pick up
from TV stations and relay to
their subscribers.
The 5-1 decision was a major
victory for operators 'of commu-
nity antenna television systems
and a major setback for firms
which license motion pictures
and cartoons to TV stations.

Thang, who is 37, was once the
American-supported boss of the
pacification program. For the past
four months he has commanded

Reliable sources said Thang's
closeness to Ky was the main
reason that he was replaced yes-
terday by Lt. Gen. Nguyen Van Le,
former inspector general of the
armed forces. Thang is for the
time being on "indefinite sick
